Phase II of the Salmon Springs Water Main Replacement Project replaced approximately 3,000 linear feet of existing cast iron water main that had been installed in the early 1900s. This phase of the project continued the main replacement that was accomplished in Phase 1 of the project which replaced approximately 700 linear feet of water main from the collection site of Salmon Springs to the City's chlorination compound. The existing portion of the current (old) water transmission line will remain in place due to its location within a sensitive area, and will be maintained in operating condition in the event an emergency bypass of the new water transmission line is required. A large portion of the Phase II Salmon Springs Water Main Replacement will be within the City of Sumner's right-of-way. See the project vicinity map below.
The project was let for public bids earlier this year. The bids were received and opened on May 31st, with construction anticipated to begin in July. Updates to the project schedule will be posted as they become available. Property owners in the immediate vicinity of the project will receive mailers of construction notification.
We appreciate your patience and understanding with respect to possible roadway obstructions or travel delays this project may necessitate. We will work with the City of Sumner to resolve any issues that arise as diligently and swiftly as possible.
